Festival Photos/ Program with Chants

Beautiful photos of the day by Jan van Raay can be found here.

More wonderful photos from the festival can be found here by Eugene Wong.

Update 6/11: More photos found on flickr: kitseeborg.

I was so sorry we ran out of programs for the festival. In past years people weren't so interested in taking them home, and I would end up with a lot extra. So this year I severely underestimated the amount we'd need, and we were stretched pretty thin with volunteers, making it difficult to arrange a copy-run. Here is the Program. The Karaniya Metta Sutta can be found here. The version we used of the Heart Sutra can be found here.

Update regarding attendees: our volunteer counter reports 825 attendees, plus 110 people staffing booths and workshops, so we approached 1,000 people attending. At our busiest point, 350 people were in attendance.
